Iodine plays a crucial role in the nourishment of the thyroid gland, It is necessary for overall health and a key component of the detoxification process.
Traditionally, the importance of iodine to the biological function of the body was focused on iodine’s role in the nourishment of the thyroid gland, particularly for the production of T3 and T4 hormones and the regulation of metabolism. However, as the understanding of this nutrient has progressed, we come to understand that the role of iodine in the body far surpasses what most thought, and is not only necessary for overall health, but a crucial component of the detoxification process. Iodine also helps protect the body from radiation absorption
What is Nascent Iodine?
Nascent Iodine is a consumable iodine in its atomic form rather than its molecular form. It is an iodine atom that has an incomplete number of electrons. It is paramagnetic. What does that mean? Well, it means that the iodine atoms can hold an electromagnetic charge. While this all might sound a little like a flashback to chemistry class, the most important thing to understand is that Nascent Iodine has a huge energy release when consumed. This “charged” state is held by the atom until diluted in water and consumed, whereby it gradually loses energy over a 2-3 hour time span. During this time, Nascent Iodine is recognized by the body as the same iodine that is produced by the thyroid and is absorbed effortlessly by the body.
Benefits of Nascent Iodine
- Increases cellular metabolism
- Nourishes the thyroid gland
- Assists in regulating mood
- Naturally elevates the body's pH levels
- Increases antioxidant activity and immune system function
- Aids in excretion of toxic fluoride, bromine, and chlorine
- Assists chelation of heavy metals, mercury, cadmium and lead
- Supports healthy breast tissues, prostate and ovaries
Is Nascent Iodine the Same as Detoxified Iodine or Atomic Iodine?
No. Detoxified Iodine is a coined name that for many years has been produced at 10 amps of resistance for five minutes with a high volume of iodine in solution. An iodine process that according to Edgar Cayce gives the molecule of iodine additional energy making it easier to assimilate into the body.
Nascent Iodine is also totally different from the typical iodine in its denser state sold as an antiseptic, or as iodine tri-chloride (claiming to be atomized), or as added to potassium iodide to make it soluble in liquid. It is also unlike glandular or prescriptions containing hormones that take over the thyroid's job, instead of nutritionally building the thyroid to do its own job. Seaweed, seafood, greens, raw sunflower seeds, are good sources of iodine, but may not have the levels necessary to support the thyroid fully for good homeostasis in the body. Sources from seaweed may also contain high levels of arsenic.
Where is Iodine Used in the Body?
All the cells in your body contain and make use of iodine. It is concentrated in the glandular system of your body, with your thyroid containing the highest amount compared to any other organ. Significant amounts are also stockpiled in numerous other areas of the body including the salivary glands, cerebrospinal fluid and the brain, gastric mucosa, choroid plexus, breasts, and ovaries.
How soon will I feel the effects of Nascent Iodine?
Some of our clients have noticed additional energy on the first day after taking Nascent Iodine. If you already suffer from an iodine deficiency, you are most likely to notice the effect sooner.
What are the indications to use Nascent Iodine for improved immune system?
There is a general lack of Iodine in our diet. Nascent Iodine has been indicated for general supplementation to improve immunity. Iodine has also been included in recommendations to improve the body's immune systems to lessen the Ebola virus risk if there is spread of the virus.
What separates our iodine even further from other supplements on the market?
Well, the most significant difference is that our alcohol base has been upgraded and exchanged for something we feel to be much more synergistic to the product and delivery system as a whole: Demeter Certified Biodynamic Grape Alcohol.
What is "Biodynamic"?
The principles of biodynamic farming are based on the view that nature as a whole is interconnected and cyclical, and this belief and concept is what drives each and every practice from seed to harvest. The avoidance of pesticides, recycling of organic materials, efficient use of water, maintaining of biological diversity, observation of the lunar phases, and minimal dependence on imported materials (self sufficiency) are what set this class of farming above even the strictures of organic certification and into a class all their own.
Along with this innovative formula upgrade, we have also improved upon the droppers in order to ensure that the corrosive nature of alcohol does not negatively effect the rubber dropper. Our new droppers will prevent any degradation over time.
Nascent Iodine in a base of organic grain alcohol. (2% Iodine by weight / 400mcg of nascent iodine per drop)
Depending upon desired effect. One drop = 200mcg of iodine. If using for additional energy and general improved health take up to 6 drops daily. Frequent small doses are more effective than larger amounts at less frequent intervals. Always take on an empty stomach. Most will find that it is important to build up gradually in order to experience the least amount of detoxification symptoms.
Recommended: Take on an empty stomach 30 minutes before or 1 hour after meals, medications and/or supplements. Taking it after 4 PM could raise your energy levels and keep you awake at night. It is recommended to take before breakfast, before lunch and then again before 4 PM
